SAS Group is to maintain the Bombardier CRJ services formerly provided by Cimber Sterling, under a new agreement which followed the Danish carrier's collapse.

The new long-term deal has been signed with a new company, Cimber, which will pick up assets from bankrupt Cimber Sterling.

SAS says it has remained in talks with Cimber Sterling's curator since the airline's failure, in order to maintain the regional services.

The new pact, running to summer 2014, is a "final agreement", it states, which ensures that SAS can sustain the planned flight schedule.

SAS says the schedule will be similar to that previously flown by Cimber Sterling, centred on around 30 daily flights to northern and eastern Europe.
